Oh, so now socialism only gets violent when it fails? How does that even make sense? Well, fortunately for us, socialism hasn't failed nor is it endanger of falling in anywhere much less any of the previously referenced socialistic countries. They are very stable countries and have been for a very long time. Greece survived its austerity measures. The US survived its recent election with virtually no violence. It was yet again another peaceful transfer of power. And just who is it you think doesn't have to fund a standing military? And why is that relevant? All the previously mentioned countries maintain a military. They are all, with the exception of Sweden and Japan, a member of NATO. Sweden has always maintained a standing military. Where is your evidence that the failure of socialism foments violence? The fact is you have no evidence that socialism is in some way related to violence. It doesn't even make sense. How do you explain the French Revolution? How do you explain the American Revolution? They weren't socialist countries comrade. Yet the Kingdom of France and the American colonies ended with violence. Yes, all facts matter crony baby. It helps if you know them.
